Particle Tracing for Fluid Flow Blog Posts
How to Compute Residence Time in Flow Models with COMSOL®
You can compute residence time in flow problems using the Particle Tracing Module. Get the details in this blog post.
How to Analyze Turbomolecular Pumps with COMSOL Multiphysics®
Modeling gas flow in a turbomolecular pump calls for specialized numerical methods, because at such low pressures, the gas molecules rarely collide with each other.
What Formulation Should I Use for Particle Tracing in Fluids?
The COMSOL® software gives you 4 equation formulation options when modeling particle tracing in fluids: Newtonian; Newtonian, first order; Newtonian, ignore inertial terms; and Massless.
Speeding Up DNA Separation in a Microchannel via Simulation
DNA separation takes a long time using traditional methods. Now, researchers from the Missouri University of Science and Technology have found a faster way to get the job done.
Keynote Video: Designing Improved Heart Pumps with Simulation
Abbott Laboratories designed “the most complex machine ever implanted into a human being” — an LVAD for heart failure patients — using multiphysics modeling. The result? Saved lives.
Evaluating Static Mixer Performance with a Simulation App
In this blog post, we go over the setup of an app designed to quantitatively and qualitatively analyze the performance of a static mixer using the Particle Tracing Module.
Preventing Airborne Infection with CFD Modeling
Healthcare-associated infections affect millions of people around the globe. Airborne bacteria is one cause of patient infections that can be prevented with efficient ventilation system designs.
Dielectrophoresis is a phenomenon in which an electric field is used to control the movement of electrically neutral particles. Learn about how to model this effect in both DC and AC fields.
